Tam Dao tourist area has offered free wifi service since beginning of 2014, according to Department of Information and Communications of Vinh Phuc province.
Tam Dao provides free wifi service
The northern province of Vinh Phuc has spent nearly VND15 billion (USD700,000) for its free wifi project in an effort to lure more tourists to the region.
Visitors and local people will enjoy free wifi service until 2019, says the provincial Information and Communications department. Beyond 2019, customers will have to pay for wifi service.
Due to mountainous terrain, wi-fi hotspots were placed at hotels, or high buildings in the centre of Tam Dao town.
With Da Nang, Hoi An, Hue, Halong, Tam Dao is the 5th tourist destination which provides free wifi internet in Vietnam. The free wi-fi project aims to help tourists know more about people and culture of the region, thereby draw more tourists to Tam Dao, especially foreign tourists.
About Tam Dao tourist area
Tam Dao tourist area is located in Tam Duong District, 86km from Hanoi, covering Ban Thach, Thien Nhi and Phu Nghia mountains. The wonderful scenic spot is the ideal destination for vacation in the North of Vietnam.
At an altitude of over 1,000m, Tam Dao was once home to over 200 French villas, a collection of hotels and restaurants, a swimming pool and even a dance auditorium all coming together to form northern Vietnam’s first hill station and health spa. Today, while the pool may be empty and the 1920’s ball gowns off the scene, Tam Dao retains an element of charm and a welcome respite from the oft-well heated plains below, over which Tam Dao offers some splendid views.
The area offers some easy hiking in and around its tree-covered summit, and while some of the trails tend to see more goats than backpack-wielding tourists, the hill station is popular with Vietnamese tourists, so weekends can be busy — if you want the place to yourself, try for a weekday jaunt.
The national park itself is a cool pine forest with walking trails leading off on numerous hikes around its crown. Hiking trips can be organized from hotels with local guides up to the three peaks. Recent reports suggest that wildlife is returning to the area after long periods of depletion due to slash and burn farming and hunting. Notably, the hawk and white collar crow, previously thought to be extinct, are now literally flocking to the park. Larger wildlife such as deer, boar and weasel have appeared again though the chances of seeing them while hiking are extremely slim.
Tam Dao – a familiar name to Hanoi people and also the wonderful address for people who love for tourism. This is the suitable place for Hanoi people to find a near destination which can help them run away from the hot weather of the summer.
It is easy to find that Tam Dao often welcomes tourists at the weekends from Friday nights to Sunday. Rooms in hotels and restaurants are crowed by so many people and therefore, the prices of foods also rise a little. The price for a holiday of 2 days and one night in Tam Dao is nearly equal to the costs of some days eating at home and going shopping. Therefore, the change of atmosphere by taking a trip to a cool high land with your families or friends is a good choice.
